He was precise and professionally performed repair!!


on September 17

Chris was awesome. He showed up on time and diagnosed the problem immediately after doing some initial checks. Chris was very professional and knowledgeable. Thanks Chris for getting my Mustang up and running again.


on September 16

Chris instilled confidence and trust right at the start. I appreciate his knowledge and honesty. I will definitely request him again when the need arises.


on September 11

Chris performed a pre-purchase vehicle inspection for me and identified several potentially serious issues that otherwise would have gone unnoticed; this gave me the ability to negotiate not just the repair of the vehicle at the sellers expense prior to purchase but a few thousand dollars more off the purchase price as well. It's great to have someone in your corner when it comes to buying a car and his help in making an informed decision saved me from making a costly mistake. The peace of mind that comes from that alone is worth well more than the cost of the inspection. Thanks Chris!

Chris was on time, corrected my diagnosis of the problem, and fixed it quicker and at lower cost. He noted that my car required a different type of oil based on the actual VIN number not just make, model and year. So he went out to get the recomended oil. I had been using the wrong oil for years. He found a bolt and another indentified part that apparently had been dropped by other mechanics who did not bother to try and retrieve them. 5 stars for Chris.


on September 08

He fixed the issue with my truck and let us know what else we needed to have done. Very honest. Was on time for the appointment and was done in less time than he thought. I was a great experience for a first time customer. Will use again in the future.


on September 02

Although my light still isn't working (not Chris' fault), he was professional and suggested alternatives. If needed in the future, I would call again.


on August 17

Chris performed a valve cover gasket replacement on my SUV. After the initial repair, I noticed it wasn't driving correctly. Chris came back the next day and diagnosed/fixed the issue. I very much appreciated his hard work on the repair.


on August 14

Chris was early to the appointment and was very knowledgeable about the repairs to be done. He also dispelled some assessments done by prior mechanics. I would absolutely recommend him, no doubt!


on August 31

Great guy. Gave him my keys, and he figured out what was wrong in less then an hour. I want him back to fix my truck and my mom's vehicle.

Chris not only did a fine job on replacing the front right CV joint, nice and clean, but also advised me on more diagnostics for the Catalytic Converter problem. He is knowledge and responsible. Thanks.

Chris was great! There was a mix up in time and place and Chris made it work. He was efficient and quick and even recommended further car care that will be needed in the near future.


on July 08

He found the problem right away and fixed it with no problems!! Plus he helped blow up my flat tire and made sure my check engine light was off. He even arrived earlier then planned. Thanks for being so thorough and fast. He was able to show up two hours before his schedule time and my car is fixed 40 mins before my actually appointment time. Thanks a lot!!!

Chris had very good communication before he arrived. Went over all that was being done and promptly fixed. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you!! Will call Chris again:)

Chris was on-time and did a really good job. Chris is very personable and polite. He did a good job and I will request him next time I need work on my car. I am telling my friends and family about YouMechanic.com.

Chris was excellent. Timely, friendly, and professional. He switched out a broken alternator belt with ease and let me watch the entire process, which was great. I'll definitely book his services again!

Chris was great! Ended up not being to make appointment due to work so wife was there. He was very professional and explained everything as well. Will use again.


on June 22

Chris was very professional. He listened to me, then went right to work checking my vehicle. He explained what was needed and assured me he could do the work. I believe he can and will get my car in tip-top shape for my summer traveling.

OMG!! I was not aware of this service until I NEEDED too; nonetheless I was able to book with Chris and he is AWESOME. Not only did he arrive a little early, he also called earlier due to a cancellation. His abilities are not limited and he is VERY professional. We discussed other work need on my vehicle and he was very thorough about the process and quote. THANK YOU SO MUCH CHRIS; I will be scheduling with him again!


on June 13

Very pleased and I highly recommend Chris when you need a mechanic. I expected him to be very good because of all the 5 star reviews but he was even better than that. He really did a perfect job and it only took him half the time that was expected. I will be recommending him to everyone who will listen.

This is my second time with Chris as my mechanic and I couldn't be happier with his level of service. He is on time, informative and thorough with his work. He will answer any question as well. I was very happy with his work.


on June 08

My clutch slave cylinder required a special bleeding procedure to achieve maximum performance, as noted in the original Nissan Service Manual, and Chris knew this and performed the procedure as required in the manual. This knowledge impressed me. Chris was also courteous and easy to talk to about other fixes needed on my vehicle. A very satisfying experience, although the job was fairly simple.

Knowledgeable, polite and efficient. I plan to hire him again for more work and above all, i trust him. This was a great experience. I already recommended him to neighbors.


on June 02

Chris was on time and promptly got to work on a difficult and time consuming engine mount replacement; a problem with the part I supplied required more time to complete the repair than anticipated, yet Chris was able to rearrange his schedule to complete the repair the same day. This required him to make a second trip (during rush hour traffic) to finish a frustrating installation, yet he never lost his cheerful "can do" attitude and quickly finished the repair. I've worked with literally hundreds of mechanics of various trades over the course of my career in engineering and I found Chris to have the level of expertise and pride in his work that sets him apart as one of the dwindling number of true "Pros" I encounter today. I'll definitely have him back in future and recommend Chris without reservation, he'll get the job done.
